Thread: Low Diskspace Problem - NOT the usual.

    Default Low Diskspace Problem - NOT the usual.
    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to start off by saying that this is a wonderful community, and that I am honored to be part of it. IFilipino told me about it

    So my problem:

    I am running firmware 1.1.4 on an iPod Touch, and recently saw the post about how to make the Low Disk Space message disappear.

    I started doing it, although when I get to the 3rd and 4th lines, it tells me "Permission Denied"

    Please someone help! I am leaving the country tomorrow at noon, and want to fix this ASAP.

    Thnx alot in adavance!

    ~ Ivel

    2) Move your applications folder to the /private/var folder by typing the following:

    mv /Applications /private/var/Applications

    3) Change directory to / by typing

    cd /

    4) Create a symbolic link to the Applications folder's new location:

    ln -s /private/var/Applications Applications

    5) Type the following to get a directory list of /, so we can make sure the symbolic link was created correctly:

    ls -la

    You can use Boss Tool to move the Fonts and the Ringtones but I wouldn't recomment moving the Applications with it. I've read a lot of people had problems after moving the Apps.

    moving fonts gave me 100MB, thats more than enough

  14. #12
    Moving Ringtones gives you about 2-3mbs.
    Doesn't hurt, but yes, fonts is where it's at =D
